There are two teams. At some playing fields, the teams station themselves on opposite sides of the field, hence 'sides'. An American football field is shaped in a rectangle. While there are four 'sides', the longer sides are called 'sides' and the shorter sides are called 'ends'.

"Riverside" in football means to have the offense and the defense switch sides of play on the field. It is usually said during a practice when the coach wants to have the offense go the opposite direction on the field, he will say "Riverside it" telling the offense and the defense to switch sides.
A play is a "weak" play when it is run to the weak side of the field. This means that the play is run to the side of the field with less players. Usually weak plays are run to the side opposite the tight end in the standard football pro-style formation. If the formation is balanced meaning equal players on both sides of the football the weak side is considered to be the opposite side of the natural throwing motion of the quarterback.
off sides is when there are too many players when on one side of the field such as an attackmen crossing the midfield line with all 3 midfielders past it
Yes, the players switch sides in tennis. Every odd game total is when players switch sides. For example, after the first game, players switch sides. This goes for after the third game, and so forth.
Not quite sure what to make of "combined". If they are disjoint, there are 9 sides. Otherwise, up to 15.
No, not all pro football fields have a north/south layout. For example, the new multi-billion dollar Texas Stadium lays east to west. There is no rule in the nfl rule book that requires endzones to be on the north/south sides of the field. Most fields have endzones on the north/south sides so the sun doesn't shine in the players' eyes. This becomes a moot point in domed stadiums. Although the football colloquium "a north/south runner" can still be used to refer to players playing on a field that lays east/west. This phrase refers to backs who don't use fancy footwork to gain yardage; rather, they run up the middle of the field with little deviation.
